Pitfalls of a cash flow forecast template
Many start-ups, entrepreneurs, micro-businesses and SMEs are given an Excel Spreadsheet as a cash flow forecast template, by a mentor or consultant, to follow but what they don’t tell you are the pitfalls of using a Spreadsheet for forecasting:
- They can be over-complicated and intimidating
- Vulnerable to human error
- Not intuitive
- Requires addition work to see your forecasting in graphical outputs
- Manual formulae checking required
We have seen so many start-ups and entrepreneurs fail because they have relied on incorrect Spreadsheets that contain formulae which started off accurate but broke due to additional rows and columns being added. This additional information or data has then thrown out important formulae, without any warning to the user, and entire business plans have been based on inaccurate forecasts.
So we came up with an alternative to the traditional cash flow forecast template…
